Former Roc-A-Fella Co-Founder Kareem “Biggs” Burke Facing Up to 40 Years In Prison After Pleading Guilty To Federal Drug Charges

 

One of the men who helped start Roc-A-Fella Records along with Dame Dash and Jay-Z could be spending the next 40 years in a federal prison.

 

Kareem “Biggs” Burke pleaded guilty Thursday [March 15] to a single federal count of conspiracy to distribute, and to possess with intent to distribute more than 100 kilos of weed according to NorthJersey.com.


He entered the plea in Manhattan before U.S. District Judge Laura Taylor Swain.


Burke was nabbed after an 18-month investigation dubbed "Operation Green Venom." He, along with 50 others who were also arrested, was involved in a massive drug smuggling ring that distributed weed from Florida to New York.


The ring supplied the drugs to customers in New Jersey and New York.


Burke faces a minimum of five years in prison and up to a maximum 40 years when he is sentenced May 18. He also has to give up $660,000, his home, $15,000 in cash that was seized from his home when he was arrested in 2010, and his 2010 BMW.

It's a very wavy vibey song, something that seems in the lane of Lil Uzi Vert or even as diverse as Yung Lean. This definitely a track worth listening and vibing to. We have the track on repeat over here at Thisis50. We spoke to Mello Type and he let us kno, " My first project will be dropping in February, with two visuals to go with it. I tend to make music you can vibe to and mellow…See More
